All the things suggested by Telecommuting Diva as needed to start a home based business that is. I just need a better printer (preferably one with a scanner) to use in my home-based secretary/paralegal business.
Personally though I’d add a few things to her list:
- Business cards
- marketing plan
- accounting software (open source is fine)
- chocolate for the stressful days!
I’m working on these things – business cards are designed, marketing plan is ongoing, website started, planning to buy quickbooks this month and I ALWAYS have chocolate around!!!
